Please levy the MAXIMUM FINE against Oregon Health & Science University for their blatant disregard of the Animal Welfare Act when their negligence killed five voles and botched a ferret surgery. Their behavior should NOT be tolerated and MUST be punished to the fullest extent of the law.


OHSU Cited For Animal Research

From KXL.com, February 23, 2020

Federal inspectors have cited OHSU for violating animal welfare laws after five prairie voles died of thirst.

The Oregonian reported that the U.S.D.A also cited the university after a person risked contaminating surgical tools while probing a ferret’s brain with an electrode.

The violations come after inspectors performed a routine inspection of the university’s animal research facilities in Portland.

Two anti-animal research groups have urged the federal government to put an end to the university’s work.
